The Urge rocks their hometown crowd for Black Friday 2019

COBRA’S WEEK IN MUSIC [SINGLE REVIEWS]

Zonezero-“All In Your Head”: If you are a fan of 2000-2005 metal/alt-metal, bands like Static-X, Trust Co, Cold, and Spineshank, then you will love Zonezero. This is a band that I don’t know why hasn’t taken off yet but I expect them to. This song is like a time machine and I love it. I can put ...
